Will the Robert Kraft biopic be titled Horndog Billionaire?

Double H is giving people a chance to post, probably some leeway here, but there is no need to be rude, or making insensitive comments about the situation. These are 3rd world country girls held as prisoners, not there on their own.

Think before you post, or go to politics, other controversies where there might be a little more latitude. Sorry for getting on a soapbox but being rude isn't necessary.

Kraft has a HOF resume:

6 Super Bowl Rings

1 Prostitution Ring

There are approximately 5000 massage parlors in the USA. Figure 10-15 women per place. Thats 50000-75000 rough estimate. If this Kraft fiasco causes LE to crack down and eliminate them then it will all be worthwhile. What precentage of "John's" know that these women are forced into this profession against their will? People are jumping all over Kraft "because he should have known better", maybe he knew or maybe he didn't. He will be 78 soon and as we age our judgement is not what it was. Its sad to see this and I know it makes some happy to see a wealthy successful person taken down, the whole sordid mess is more of a indictment of our society than of one individual.

If it turns out Robert Kraft is guilty, this will be a real test of whether there is or is not a de-facto Character Clause for the Pro Football Hall. The Hall’s selection guidelines explicitly state that only what someone does “on the field” matters, unlike in the Baseball Hall.

Without this, Kraft would be a shoo-in for the HoF in a few years, especially given that owners like Ed DeBartolo, Jerry Jones, and Pat Bowlen are in. His accomplishments are every bit as impressive as theirs, more so in all but Jones’s case. But there are issues with players such as Jim Tyrer and Darren Sharper, who are unlikely to get elected despite varying degrees of worthiness (Tyrer especially) — and even though there’s supposedly no Character Clause.

Agreed. People on the thread are making an assumption that these women are doing this by choice. I can't speak for all the women because I don't know but many of these women are being held against their will and being forced to carry out these violent heinous acts.


People are so quick to get on street crime but then you have a certain demographic who aids in making forced prostitution profitable and instead of demeaning and demonizing them like you do street crime, their behavior is excused/made out to be okay.

Why do people in this country feel the need to defend the ultra wealthy? They try to emulate them so much and I fail to understand why. He's 78 but that doesn't mean he is senile. We should still trust that he is of sound mind.



No, it has nothing to do with people hating on him for being wealthy. Wrong is wrong and he shouldn't get let off the hook because he is wealthy/successful. You shouldn't be surprised to know that a lot of men know these things (the women are being forced) and that's part of what makes it...more exciting for them. It's pretty sick. When you are being forced to do something, it tends to show.

Ah, the Uncle Leo defense.



Of course, you have no idea if Kraft's mental faculties are diminished. But you've decided that Kraft - and not those trafficked as sex workers - is the real victim here.

And that's pretty sad.
